Daily Prayer - Compassion for the Sick

Compassion for the Sick

Merciful Jesus, 
during Your life on earth 
You showed great concern for the sick and the infirm. 
Have compassion now on all those 
who are sick or in pain. 
Grant them a healing of mind and body 
and restore their strength and spirit. 
Comfort them with the knowledge 
that we are praying for them, 
and give them peace with a sense of Your presence. 
May they know that in the special way 
they are united with You, 
their suffering Christ. 
May they contribute to the welfare 
of the whole People of God 
by associating themselves freely 
with Your passion and death 
for the salvation of the world. 
Bless, too, those who take care of the sick. 
In their own time of need, 
bestow on them a hundred fold the blessings 
they have given to others.

Amen.
